Thank You #FUNDTHEFIGHT Ball 2015

Thank you to all of our sup­port­ers who came out to Fund the Fight!

We had a blast at the Fund the Fight Ball, and we hope that you did, too.  Immunother­apy research was the biggest win­ner of the night, and we can’t wait to see how Uni­ver­sity of Chicago researchers are able to turn the funds raised into mean­ing­ful advances in can­cer treat­ment and prevention.

In addi­tion to the incred­i­ble gen­eros­ity of those that attended we would like to acknowl­edge the auc­tion item donors, we want to pub­licly rec­og­nize some of the spon­sors who made this event pos­si­ble.  An extra shout out to Brix, mfk., and Lagu­ni­tas, thank you!

Make sure to check out your pho­to­booth pic­tures at:–04-11-Fund-the-Fight/

Can’t wait to party with the Asso­ciates Board again?  Join us at the Pub­lic Hotel on Sat­ur­day, May 9th when our very own Chelsea Cankar will be the celebrity guest bar­tender!  The Uni­ver­sity of Chicago Can­cer Research Foun­da­tion will be the night’s ben­e­fi­ciary, and we expect it to be just as much fun as this past Sat­ur­day.  No tick­ets or RSVP needed!
